An amusing story that teaches problem-solving through experimentation

A little lizard is the only one who can't enjoy playing outside in the sunshine, because he is prone to sunburn. To tackle his dilemma, he comes up with a plan, selects materials, prepares, then performs a series of experiments—showing that with perseverance and determination, any problem can be solved.


"This gratifyingly engaging tale lets the readers in on the fun of planning and discovery while emphasizing a little perseverance. ... A little imagination and then a plan and the lizards will tackle that next problem with gusto." —Kirkus Reviews
